On Saturday I was in the AT&T store on Northwest Highway when I got a call on my new cellphone. Couldn't make out a damned thing my friend on the other end was saying. I turned to the AT&T employee who'd just put me on the waiting list. Asked him, "Shouldn't I be getting better reception in the AT&T store?" He tells me, uh, yeah, since there's a tower right on the top of the store. My friend, over a blizzard of static, says, "Ask him if they're just trying to be ironic." Like this item from Courthouse News, maybe?
